Design & Custom Precision Cutting Tool Capabilities

As a U.S.-based custom manufacturer of highly specialized, precision cutting tools, Tri Star Engineering, Inc. has the engineering expertise, as well as the management and quality systems required to offer technical insights, quality machining, and quick turnaround and delivery times.

Tri-Star advantages include repeatable precision, increased dimensional stability, extremely fine surface finishes, and enhanced tool strength, as well as simplified re-sharpening.

Customers turn to Tri-Star because we add value through our customer focus, we understand the importance of tracking tool life to measure the return on the investments made in higher-quality, longer-lasting tools.

We offer engineering and technical support as well as inspection reports, but also provide unique custom manufacturing services such as cam relief, which is ideal for tools with complex geometries and so effectively ensures the tool retains its form and dimensions when sharpened. Tri-Star is able to work with a variety of metals, including leaded brass and cast iron, as well as specialized coatings such as TiN, TiCAN and TiALN.

In addition, we can handle support services such as re-sharpening, refurbishing, carbide re-tipping and facing. Our commitment to quality is reflected in our ISO 9001:2008 and SAE certifications.

Additional details regarding our capabilities are presented below. We look forward to discussing your unique requirements.
